1 schematically shows a project website or software application 1 (hereinafter referred to as “project website 1”) suitable for use with a communication system 10 (see, for example, FIG. 2) according to the present invention. The project website 1 is intended for use by a user (not shown in FIG. 1) to display an identifier (discussed in detail below) or a language that can then be used as a means of communication through network 2 using any suitable communication devices and / or computer devices , and / or other websites or applications (not shown in FIG. 1) via any suitable data transfer protocol 3, for example, SMS or email, as shown in the drawing.
It is clear that, depending on the capabilities of the device and / or application used, and / or the special data transfer protocol 3, in some cases the full language that was created through the project website 1 may need to be compressed for delivery over network 2. However, where is this perhaps, subject to technical limitations on issues such as delivery, message 3 will always remain readily available for normal use, rather than segmented into sections.
By personalizing the language that is used, for example, for text messaging, the user can express his own personality inside the messages. Although there are currently some characters available for use in existing telephones or similar devices, all such well-known characters are installed without their personal input by the user and are very limited in their volume and expression capabilities.
Since the Internet, and therefore access to the website, is now widely available for mobile phones and other devices, personalization of communication has become possible, since the communication language can be created and modified through a website or similar Internet interface made available to the user using such devices. The project website 1, see FIG. 1, is just one of many examples of a suitable interface that can be used to create a personalized language for use through / using communication devices and / or computer devices, etc.
FIG. 2 shows a preferred communication system 10, which illustrates an embodiment of how users 12 can interact with the preferred project website 1 shown in FIG. 1 through a network (s) 2 using any suitable communication device (s) and / or computer device (s) 14 (hereinafter referred to simply as “communication device (s) 14”). Although the described system 10 according to the present invention is described as suitable for use by the network (s) 2, it should be understood that this system 10 is not limited to only such use.
Figure 2 shows that the project website 1 is located on at least one network server 16, which is designed to receive / transmit data from at least one communication device 14. The term “communication device 14” refers to any suitable type of computing / communication device or corresponding application capable of transmitting / receiving and displaying data as described above, such as, for example, a personal computer or mobile phone, as shown in the drawing.
The network server 16 is configured to communicate with the communication devices 14 via any suitable connection or network 2. Each communication device 14 is configured to display and / or transmit / retrieve data from the network server 16 or other communication device (s) 14 through or to these devices networks 2. Each communication device 14 can communicate with a network server 16 and / or with other communication devices 14 through the same or another network 2. The corresponding networks 2 include, but are not limited to: a local network (LAN) Personal Area Network (PAN), such as an Intranet regional network (WAN), such as the Internet; Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) network Bluetooth network satellite communications network; radio network; pager network; a telecommunications network, for example, a recently introduced 3G network; Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN), for example, networks used in terminals in television conferencing applications; and / or any suitable WiFi network (wireless network).
Network server 16 may include various types of equipment and / or software necessary for communicating with communication devices 14, for example, routers, switches, access points and / or Internet gateways (all indicated by common position “18”), each of which is obvious for a person skilled in the art.
Each communication device 14 is configured to be controlled by at least one user 12 of the system 10. The term "user 12" refers to any person who has at least one communication device 14 or is located near such a device and is able to control it and transmit data to network server 16 or other communication devices 14 and receive data from them, and / or display / retrieve data, for example, it can be a mobile phone user who can easily participate in the exchange of text messages via Internet or messaging, a network user who can easily use e-mail or online social programs, an employee who has access to the corporate internal network to use e-mail, and / or search for documents or for other purposes, and / or any other type of user 12, which can easily communicate using any suitable software protocol 3, for example, an email protocol or an SMS protocol, as shown in FIGS. 1 and 2.
Obviously, communication devices 14 may also include various types of software and / or hardware necessary to capture, send and / or display data for communication purposes, including, but not limited to: a web browser or other graphical application (s) user interface (GUI); monitor (s), GUI positioning devices and / or any other suitable device (s) for collecting information and / or displaying it (not shown). Similarly, communication devices 14 may also include various types of software and / or hardware suitable for transmitting data to network server 16 and / or other communication devices 14 and receiving data from network server 16 and / or other communication devices 14 through the network (network) 2.
Although the use of system 10 is described with respect to users 12 who use communication devices 14 to connect and interact with network server 16 and / or other communication devices 14 through network 2, it is obvious that system 10 according to the present invention is not limited to such use only. In an alternative embodiment of the invention (not shown), users 12 can interact directly with a network server 16, which may be their own personal computer or a public computer, such as a computer in an Internet kiosk, library, or Internet cafe. In this alternative embodiment of the invention, the system 10 can be formed by only one network server 16 in the form of software and / or hardware application (s), and therefore, the devices 14 are not essential for the operation of the system 10. Therefore, the present invention is not limited to the specific arrangement shown in the drawing.
As shown in FIG. 2, it is preferable that the network server 16 is at least one network server or SMS server, or is connected via the network (s) 2 to at least one additional network server 16 (not shown) operating as network server or SMS server, so that the system 10 is an online service available to users 12 who are owners of communication devices 14 connected to the Internet or communication network (s) 2, or which are located near such devices.
System 10 may be available to users 12 free of charge, or may be provided to users 12 “on demand” through an Application Service Provider (ASP) for an appropriate fee. The use of the application service provider may relate only to the selected group of users 12, for example, professional and / or corporate users 12, which can be large users of the system 10.
Preferably, the network server 16 uses security to verify access rights of the communication devices 14. In addition, it is preferable that the network server 16 has the function of checking the integrity of the data transmitted between the network server 16 and the communication devices 14. Obviously, technologies and many options are available to achieve the desired level of security and / or data verification, and therefore no detailed discussion is required. Accordingly, the present invention should be construed as encompassing any suitable data protection and / or verification technology, as is obvious to those skilled in the art.
Communication and / or data transfer between communication devices 14 and network server 16 through the network (s) 2 can be organized using any suitable communication and / or data transfer protocol 3, for example, a protocol for transmitting electronic mail, SMS messages, MMS messages, file transfer protocol (FTP), hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP), transmission control protocol / Internet protocol (TCP / IP), any suitable Internet-based messaging service, any combination of the above protocols and / or technologies and / or any other A suitable protocol or communication technology that provides data delivery and / or communication / data transfer between communication devices 14 and network server 16.
Access to the network server 16 and data transfer between the communication devices 14 and the network server 16 can be intermittent (for example, upon request), but preferably are carried out on the fly, that is, in real time.
As already mentioned above, the system 10 in FIG. 2 is designed to allow users 12 to create their own personalized language for communication through their own communication device 14 using, for example, the website 1 of the project shown in FIG. 1.
Figure 1 shows that users 12 of the system 10 (figure 2) are able to interact with the website 1 of the project (located on the network server 16) through the network 2 using, for example, protocols 3 SMS or e-mail. In this drawing it can be seen that the website 1 of the project is designed so that user input (e.g., commands, a captured language, etc.) sent / received by the data transfer protocol 3 are processed and captured by the website 1 of the project, as indicated by the block ( a) in this drawing. Block (b) shows that all the data captured by the project website 1 is stored in the corresponding data store or database (s) 20 (see FIG. 2) for future inquiries / searches. Blocks (c) and (d) illustrate that data and / or any personalized language that is created using the project website 1 is made available to users 12 (in various forms) upon request or as needed.
For a better understanding of the way in which a personalized communication language can be created and used by users 12 of the system 10, for example, using the project website 1 in FIG. 1, we turn to FIG. 3, which explains the operation of the preferred language creation module 30, suitable for use with 1 project website.
Figure 3 shows that in order to create his own personalized language, user 12 may first be forced to subscribe to the project website 1, as shown by block 32. It is understood that a subscription based service is not essential for the operation of the present invention. Accordingly, the present invention should not be construed as limited to the specific example given. After subscribing and / or connecting to the project website 1, user 12 can proceed to page 34 to create a language on the project website 1, after which the user is ready to create his own personalized communication language according to the present invention.
A language can be created for many purposes, including, but not limited to, the following purposes: (1) to create a user identifier (i.e., for example, an identifier logo; mood rings / pictograms [for example, see “mood ring” in FIG. 2] and / or contact icons, as discussed in more detail below), and / or (2) for sending a language for future use in various platforms on your own page 12 of the subscriber / user of the website 1 of the project or a similar website / application (not shown) .
On page 34 of the creation of the language, accessible through the website 1 of the project of the system 10, the “wheel of languages” can be provided to user 12 as a tool for creating the language (see block 34 in FIG. 3). As shown in FIG. 3, the tongue wheel may be a round (3-dimensional) pictogram containing various segments, each of which represents a different type of language for selection by user 12. To select different types of language elements, which may include, for example, colors , symbols, images, sounds, etc. (see block 36 in FIG. 3), user 12 can simply click on segments of the tongue wheel as desired (block 34).
Now turn to blocks 36 and 38 in figure 3. After the user 12 selects the desired language element, for example, “sound”, a pop-up menu appears for the user 12 to select, which may cover, for example, nature, games, adventures, the environment, street culture, etc. Each theme preferably has a predefined set of options, set by default by system 10, and user 12 can optionally test the sounds before finally deciding which sound (s) they like best for the particular desired purpose (for example, they can choose the identifier logo favorite sound, while for the ring / pictogram of moods, they can choose a theme and an associated sound that expresses the feelings that currently hold the user). After selecting the desired sound (s), user 12 can drag this sound (s) onto the language wheel shown in block 34. As soon as the sound (s) is loaded, the corresponding segment / sector of the language wheel can be highlighted (or display the selection in another way ), indicating that the relevant wheel segment is “installed”.
Once user 12 has identified all the desired elements of the language, he may be asked to choose whether his identifier refers to: a social network site, such as Facebook or Myspace, another application programming interface (s) (hereinafter referred to as the API) and / or project website 1 and etc. In the case of the project website 1, the identifier emblem: (2) is located on the user’s own pages 12 within this website 1, (2) is used as a link to the “Direction Page” (a detailed description of which is given below) for any groups, of which the subscriber / user 12 is a member, and / or (3) is used as a link in any communities with which the subscriber / user 12 is connected. Users 12 can mark / select answers and the corresponding icon or selection options for loading the language will appear. Then, user 12 may be prompted to upload his identifier logo, etc. to your page on the website of 1 project, etc.
Obviously, any language created using system 10 can be used for a variety of purposes, for example: to create content intended for download as attribute identifiers, for private and confidential communication between selected communities or groups, and / or to use abbreviations for daily communication through communication devices 14.
When people get to know each other better, often they want to use abstract symbolism, which gives room for interpretation. Symbol, etc. reaches its goal, creating interest and ensuring the continuation of the contact and the process of dating.
Personalized language, such as symbols, sounds and / or other expressions of feelings that can be selected / created for use by the method and / or system of the present invention and / or any suitable products, can be incorporated or used in many areas of everyday life , for example, system 10 can provide the creation of television programs that can use a personalized language created by users 12, or provide a language for promoting brands of other platforms, etc. Although users 12 may not want to use the brand symbols (i.e., a predefined language) offered through system 10, the latter will be available as options and can act as headings for the categories of those offered symbols that are available for use between different platforms.
There are many advantages to using such a multi-sensory and / or multi-faceted personalized language system provided with system 10, instead of using standard text (a well-known technical solution) and basic characters to transmit, they include, but are not limited to: reducing the time required for creating a text message, letter for e-mail, etc., reducing the time required to transfer complex information, the versatility of the language, because the characters, drawings, color, etc. applied globally and mainly over all cultural boundaries, which gives a big gain in costs, since today's communication market is global, and / or useful in sorting information in communication device 14 — for example, having the ability to create your own language through system 10, the user 12 can personalize navigation (for example, menus, etc.) in his communication devices 14 using his own informative language, which again gives the user 12 the satisfaction of self-expression and Creates affection for such communication devices 12 and brands.
Some users 12 may wish to use other forms of interpretation of feelings as a means of expression (for example, vibrations or changes in sounds); other users may want to use only visual interpretation. Such a user 12 can express all five senses using the system 10, of course, provided that his communication devices 14 are capable of transmitting expressions of these feelings. According to another aspect of the present invention, such a communication device 14 is configured so that users 12 have the option of sending or initiating the transmission of one or more expression of feelings through a messaging system 10, a social network platform 10, or other functionally effective communication device 14, so that the device or platform on which the message is received could affect all five senses of the intended recipient.
For example, it is envisioned that, within the online environment, the present invention provides the following tools for users (but not limited to): (1) for defining “multifaceted” identifiers that define: the users themselves (that is, for example, who they are, what they like what they support), their mood; what “part” of them says (for example, if the user's heart speaks, then in this aspect this fact would appear as a heart pictogram [see, for example, Fig. 10a], or whether the user's head is associated with a specific type of sound that defines the user etc.); and / or the best time to get in touch with users; (2) to create: groups and group identifiers (as described above in (1)); subgroups and subgroup identifiers; multisensory language for use within groups and subgroups and for external use on other platforms and / or networks and network identifiers and / or (3) for using the created language in other forms, for example, in created products, for example, key rings, displays or other products (see, for example, FIG. 9) that are user identifier 12 or promote the identifier and values of a corporation, group, network or organization.
As briefly discussed above with reference to FIGS. 1-3, the project website 1 of the system 10 can also be used to create a highly personalized user identifier 40, for example, an identifier logo, ring or pictogram (shown in FIG. 2) of the mood and / or contact icon .
Figures 4a-4d show various diagrams, each of which illustrates a preferred visual display of the respective user identifiers 40 or their various faces that can be created using the system 10 according to the present invention. Obviously, these drawings are given only to illustrate examples of several types of user identifiers 40 that can be created in accordance with the present invention. Obviously, through system 10, many other types of identifiers (not shown) can be created, and therefore such alternative identifiers are encompassed by the present invention. For example, such user identifiers 40 may be shown in the form of three-dimensional block figures that rotate and / or come to life to display the user identifier, his mood and / or current circumstances, etc. Obviously, there are many variations of user identifiers 40, and accordingly, the present invention should not be considered limited to the specific examples given.
On figa visual display of the corresponding identifier (ID) 40 of the user is shown in three-dimensional form, illustrating the various faces of the identifier 40, which can be accessed independently, while everything is stored in one file. It can be seen in this drawing that user identifier 40 may include a first page 42 with links to other pages or faces of identifier 40. Other suitable pages / faces include, but are not limited to: profile page 44; a contact page 46, which can be used by user 12, for example, to display the best time to get in touch with him; personal page 48, which can display various personal attributes or details of user 12, and / or global page 50, which can be used to show friends of user 12, group or network, etc. In this drawing, reference numeral 52 is used to illustrate that faces 42-50 of user identifier 40 can be combined and stored in a single file.
Fig. 4b shows an example of a detailed image of various individual faces that can be stored within the user ID 40. More specifically, in this drawing, it can be seen that by clicking, for example, on the link 43 provided on the first page 42 of the identifier 40 shown in FIG. 4a, additional information can be accessed and, if desired, consider, update and / or create such information. The diagram on the left in FIG. 4b shows that users 12 can create a personal identifier 40 by selecting language elements through, for example, the language creating module 30 discussed above with reference to FIG. 3. In this case, the diagram on the right in FIG. 4b shows that users 12 can provide / download such more personal details about themselves or about current circumstances that can be included within the personal page 48 of user ID 40 shown in FIG. 4a.
4c and 4d illustrate in more detail preferred visual identifiers 40 that can be created using the system 10 according to the present invention. At the same time, FIG. 4c shows that the user’s personal identifier 40 is included in the database 20 of the system 10, accessible through the project website 1, to create a group identifier 40a (which can illustrate all members of a group, community, association, network or organization) and / or identifier 40b for a specific project (which, in the case of, for example, a corporation, will illustrate all the elements of a specific project conducted by this organization). Figure 4c shows that the first pages of various identifiers 40, 40a, 40b may include various visual indicators specific to user 12, group, project, etc. For example, in this drawing it can be seen that in these preferred identifiers 40, 40a, 40b are used to visually represent the faces of individuals (users 12), groups or projects, etc. colors, characters, text, etc. can be used.
Fig. 4d shows a diagram similar to that shown in Fig. 4c, however, there is an additional combined identifier 40c in this drawing as a means of illustrating the fact that different faces of the personal, group identifier 40, 40a, 40b and / or the project identifier can be combined by system 10 with the formation of an overlapping visual representation of these identifiers. Thus, for example, the resulting combined identifier 40c is a representative of the personality attributes of the user 12, group, and project.
Figures 4a-4c demonstrate that user 12 of system 10 can create a community (or group) and create a name and identifier 40a (for example, by selecting a character using an independent commit button, etc.) for that community. User 12 may want to make the community private or open. If it is private, only members (users 12) of the community can see the logo of the identifier, mood icons, community mood icons, etc. If it is open, all visitors (users 12) of the project website 1 can view the emblems of personal identifiers of community members, mood pictograms, community mood pictograms, etc. for community identifier 40a.
The developer, having established the community identifier 40a and the name, is able to send an invitation through the appropriate communication protocol 3, for example, via email or through various social networks or any other places in which this group of friends or colleagues communicate, and invite them to subscribe to the website 1 project, to become a member of this community and to determine the language and your personal logo, identifier, mood icon, etc., so they can become part of this community. If it is chosen that the community is open, members can choose whether the subject of their dialogue (ID 40) is associated with the direction. If so, they can contact the “Referral Page” of the project website 1 (discussed in detail below) and, thus, expand contacts and access to members (users 12) of a wider community with a similar center of interest.
The community curator can establish a rating system for various elements of the language and assign a value to each element (including color, etc.). Thus, community members can get in touch with the group’s curator if they want to discuss the choice made by the curator, wish to offer another choice and / or wish to send an invitation for discussion to the community selected discussion forum.
As mentioned above, the community mood icon 40a may be formed by combining the mood icons (identifiers 40) of its individual members.
You can assign weight to various language elements (for example, color, symbols, images, sounds, etc.) (for example, from 1 to 10 depending on the number of options, while the number of options is distributed evenly across all elements of the language), which will facilitate the combination identifiers 40 for members (i.e. 12 users).
After the update, all the old data on the mood of the community can be saved in the database 20 as a link and for drawing or displaying on the community’s own page within the framework of the website 1 of the project. Then, if necessary, to the old icons of community mood, etc. can be accessed by clicking on the corresponding sector of the chart, etc.
5 is a flowchart illustrating a preferred method 100 for updating the mood status in user ID 40 in accordance with a system 10 made in accordance with the present invention. Although only the preferred method 100 for updating the mood status in user ID 40 is described in the diagram of FIG. 5, it is obvious that the same or similar method (not shown) can also be used to update other attributes / faces of user IDs 40 according to the present invention.
In this drawing, it can be seen that according to the method 100 for updating the mood status in the user ID 40, the user 12 must first send a request to the project website 1 of the system 10 using a suitable communication protocol 3 (for example, SMS or email). The request contains, for example, data or words that correspond to textual meanings assigned to various language elements on site 1. The request indicates the circumstances of user 12 that need to be changed (and also possibly includes additional details of user 12 so that system 10 knows for sure who user 12 is and / or what he wants to change). Words, etc., contained in the request indicate emotions that are referenced on the project website 1, for example, happy, sad or angry (the user can also choose from the given dictionary of emotions that corresponds to each element of the language). Block 102 of method 100 illustrates the receipt by the website 1 of the project of the system 10 of the request message.
In decision block 104, a check can be made to see if the request message contains natural language (obviously, additionally or alternatively, another check can be made). If it is determined in block 104 that the request does not contain a natural language, the method 100 continues to decision block 106, after which a further check is made whether the request is readable and / or correct. If the decision block 104 determines that the request contains natural language, the method 100 continues to block 108, after which the natural language in the request is converted into a predetermined format representing the status commands necessary to make such a “mood” change that the user 12 needs. After this, the method 100 continues to block 106 decision-making, as before.
If it is determined in decision block 106 that the request is not correct or contains the wrong syntax, method 100 continues to block 110, after which a message is sent to user 12 informing that the desired change in “mood” could not be completed due to an error , and then the method 100 ends, or ends, in block 112.
If it was determined at decision block 106 that the request is correct, method 100 continues at block 114, and new mood status indicators are determined from the commands contained within the request.
In decision block 116, another check is carried out, this time to determine whether the new mood status indicators are correct or enabled, and if so, then new mood status indicators are generated in block 118 and stored (for example, in the cache and etc.) for subsequent extraction. After that, in block 120, an output response to the status change is generated and sent to user 12, informing him that the mood status has been updated and is now available (at this stage, any associated messages can also be sent to user 12). After this, the method 100 ends in block 112, as before.
If it was determined in decision block 116 that the new mood indicators are not correct, in block 122, the mood indicators are modified and a message is generated in block 124, informing user 12 about the modifications made to the requested mood indicators. After this, the method 100 continues in block 118, as before, and ends in block 112 after the new mood status indicators are generated and a response is sent to user 12 (with the corresponding message generated in block 124).
To update the mood status of user identifier 40, method 100 may be required and / or may use various status commands. For example, method 100 can assign a mood status with a set of displays, and weights can be assigned, for example, as follows: from 10 = enthusiastic to 1 = depressed.
Each symbol, color, image and / or sound offered through the website 1 of the project can be assigned a number that allows you to match the new updated mood status or icon according to the numbers that are assigned to each element of the language.
Users 12 may wish to send mood status updates in abbreviated form and may have such an option - for example, if the user knows the number that is assigned to each element of the language, he can click on the button or the “abbreviated updates” button (not shown) on the project website 1, and then send SMS, email, etc. in abbreviated form, for example like this: C (meaning color) = 1 (i.e. blue); IM (meaning image) = 2 (i.e. clouds); SY (meaning symbol) = 1 (straight line) and / or S (meaning sound) = wind.
When user 12 reorganizes the mood icon by sending an update, the intuitive database 20 of the system 10 uses the predefined settings made by user 12 on the project website 1 to change the mood status or icon of user ID 40. The new mood icon is stored in the database 20, and it can also be referred to as a diagram on users 12 own pages within the project website 1, and then the icon of the new current mood status is sent to this user’s own page 12 on website 1. Data on the old mood status can be stored in the database 20 as a link and for graphical display on the user's own page 12. Then the icons of the old mood status are available for user 12 by clicking on Responsible sector chart or other visual images within the identifier 40.
According to an alternative embodiment of the invention (not shown), it can use a suitable voice identification protocol, for example IVR (Interactive Voice Response, which can work as a plug-in associated with block 106 in method 100. Such an alternative embodiment of the invention includes automated voice questions and answers that lead to the establishment of selected reactions and feedback for updating the mood status in the user ID 40.
As an example, to illustrate that other faces of the user identifier 40 can also be easily updated using a method (not shown) similar to the method 100 shown in FIG. 5, if we consider the contact part (position 46 in FIG. 4 a) of the identifier 40, - user 12 can send a request to the website 1 of the project via the appropriate communication protocol (for example, SMS, e-mail, etc.) containing text, words and / or other data that correspond to commands requesting such changes in language elements in websa those 1 of the project, which indicate the state of the user 12, for example, "busy", "angry", "available to ...", "on vacation until ...".
Unlike the case where method 100 is used to update the mood status in identifier 40, a similar method (not shown) for updating the contact pictogram (46) for identifier 40 may not need to be weighed, because updates are alphabetic (i.e., only text).
6 is a flowchart illustrating a preferred method 200 for detecting a current mood status in a user ID 40 in a system 10 made in accordance with the present invention. Although only the preferred method 200 for identifying the current mood status in the user identifier 40 is considered as part of the flowchart of FIG. 6, it is obvious that, according to the present invention, the same or similar method (not shown) can also be used to identify other identifier attributes / faces 40 users.
In this drawing, it can be seen that in order to identify the current mood status in the user ID 40 in accordance with the method 200, the user 12 must first send a request to the website 1 of the project of the system 10 using the corresponding communication protocol 3 (for example, SMS or email). The request contains, for example, data, words or commands corresponding to the commands that the project website 1 needs to identify the current mood status. Block 202 in method 200 represents the receipt of this request message on the website 1 of the design of system 10.
At a block 204, a check can be made to verify that the device 14 of the user 12 can provide the current mood status in the corresponding identifier 40. Details of the installed capabilities of the device 14 can be stored for future reference in block 206.
At decision block 208, a check is made to see if the desired mood status is available. If it is determined in block 208 that the desired mood status is not available, method 200 continues to block 210, after which a message is sent to user 12 informing him that the desired mood status is not available, and then method 200 ends or ends its work in block 212.
If it is determined at decision block 208 that the desired mood status is available, method 200 continues at block 214, after which the desired mood status is retrieved and it is ready for transfer to user 12. At block 216, it sends back to the capabilities of device 14 of user 12 stored in block 206, in the light of the mood status extracted in block 214, and if it is determined that device 14 is limited in its ability to detect all mood status data, then in this block (block 216) the mood status data is changed so that correspond to user device 14 12. After that, in block 218, the resulting mood status data (or initial data, if no modifications were requested in block 216) are transmitted to user 12, and finally, method 200 ends in block 212, as before.
FIG. 7 is a flowchart illustrating a preferred method 300 for using a user identifier attribute 40 to perform an advanced search for television or other programs. In this drawing, it can be seen that the user identifier and mood status in the identifier 40 can be used for an advanced search for television or other programs. Obviously, other attributes of 12 user identifiers 40 can alternatively be used for the same purpose. Such an extension of search capabilities is very effective for digital television, video on demand, mobile television, entertainment during an air flight, etc. - i.e. where such offers should now be more personalized than before.
In this drawing it can be seen that for the implementation of such a search based on television with advanced features, etc. according to method 300, user 12 must first send a request to the website 1 of the project of system 10 using the appropriate communication protocol 3 (e.g., SMS or email). The query contains, for example, data or words that correspond to text values associated with various language elements on site 1, necessary for search purposes. Block 302 in method 300 illustrates the receipt of this request message on a project website 1, etc. system 10.
At block 304, a check is made to establish the capabilities of the communications device 14 to search for programs. Although not shown, as with method 200 shown in FIG. 6, the capabilities of device 14 may be retained for future reference.
At a block 306, a mood status possible for device 14 is retrieved for advanced search purposes. At decision block 308, a check is made to see if the desired mood status is available. If it is determined at block 308 that the desired mood status is not available, method 300 continues at block 310, after which a message is sent to device 14 informing that the desired mood status is unavailable, and then method 300 terminates or ends in block 312.
If it is determined in decision block 308 that the desired mood status is available, method 300 continues at block 314, after which the desired mood status is used to conduct an advanced program search taking into account the capabilities of device 14 (defined in block 304). After that, in block 316, the resulting search elements corresponding to the capabilities of the device are used to perform a given search, and finally, the method 300 ends in block 312, as before.
The search engine used in block 314 may be any suitable search tool or application, but in accordance with one embodiment of the invention, it may be the “Search Engine 800”, referred to below in Example 18, or may be similar to such to the mechanism.
FIG. 8 is a flowchart that illustrates a preferred method 400 for using the user identifier attribute 40 to perform advanced Internet searches. It can be seen in this drawing that a user identifier and mood status for an identifier 40 can be used to conduct an advanced search. Obviously, other attributes of the user identifiers 12 of the user 40 can alternatively be used for the same purpose. Such an advanced Internet search significantly increases the degree of user perception 12 when searching, because when searching for what you want to find, you can use the mood, etc., without having to enter text every time ka. For any user requirement 12, a user identifier, a mood icon, and other attributes of the identifier 40 can be used to further narrow down the search and increase the efficiency of the search conducted by the user.
It can be seen from this drawing that in order to perform such an advanced Internet search in accordance with method 400, user 12 must first send a request to the website 1 of the project 10 of the system 10 or to a search engine (not shown) accessible via network 2 using the appropriate communication protocol 3 (e.g. SMS or email). The query contains, for example, data or words that represent the search terms used. Block 402 in method 400 illustrates the receipt of this request message by project website 1, etc. system 10.
At block 404, a check can be made to determine the capabilities of device 14 to conduct the desired search. Although not shown, as with the method 200 shown in FIG. 6, the capabilities of the device 14 may be stored for future reference.
At a block 406, a current mood status for device 14 is retrieved for advanced search. At decision block 408, a check is made to see if the desired mood status is available. If at block 408 it is determined that the desired mood status is not available, method 400 continues at block 410, after which a message is sent to device 14 informing that the desired mood status is not available, and then method 400 ends or ends in block 412.
If it is determined in decision block 408 that the desired mood status is available, method 400 continues to block 414, after which the desired mood status is used to conduct an advanced Internet search taking into account the capabilities of device 14 (defined in block 404). After that, in block 416, the resulting search elements corresponding to the capabilities of the device are used to perform a given search, and finally, the method 400 ends in block 412, as before.
As with the method 300 shown in FIG. 7, the search engine used in block 414 can be any suitable search tool or application, but in accordance with one embodiment of the invention, it can be a “Search engine 800”, which is referenced below in Example 18, or a similar mechanism.
Figure 9 shows many samples of products and / or devices that can be created and / or can be used by any of the methods and / or communication systems according to the present invention. It is obvious that the products for communication, shown in Fig.9, are just a few examples of the immense number of products suitable for use in accordance with the present invention. The present invention should not be construed as limited to the specific examples given.
Communication products suitable for use within the method and / or communication system of the present invention are, for example: a ring 502, a watch 504 or a watch strap 504a, a headphone or other elements attached to or included in clothing 506 .
In accordance with the present invention, such products or devices can be used, for example, to: give a visual display of a user identifier or other attributes of identifier 40; inform authorized persons about the accident; inform about changes in practical circumstances; notify others of changes in identifier, etc. and / or notify others of a change or update in mood, etc. In other words, such products can be used as physical portable identifiers 40 to perform the same functions or functions similar to those performed by their electronic or online parts.
Any of the products 502-506 shown in FIG. 9 may change color or undergo another change affecting the senses, according to the mood of the user 12, etc., as set forth on the project website 1, and / or by other means, which uses a communication method and / or system to update the settings or attributes of user 12. An incoming signal may change ring 502 or other products to demonstrate and / or visually notify user 12 and / or other users of this change. Couples or groups can have rings 502, the attributes of which are coordinated, that is, they can be changed simultaneously in accordance with the mood of both / all users 12, etc., and therefore they can notify each other about changes in circumstances, etc. Ring 502, watch 504 (or watch strap 504a) or clothing items 506, etc. can also be used to display the user ID, not his mood, etc., which can be useful for corporate uniforms and / or for brand promotion, etc.
10a and 10b show further illustrations of preferred visual indicators relating to identifiers 40, 40a, 40b of individuals, groups, and / or projects. These preferred visual indicators are suitable for use with any of the communication methods and / or systems of the present invention. Preferred identifiers 40 are particularly suitable for an indexing system in accordance with a preferred embodiment of the invention.
On figa shows that the identifiers 40 of the user 12 can be visually displayed as a two-dimensional or three-dimensional representation. A two-dimensional (or flat) representation is suitable for use when, for example, it is necessary to send information and identification related to a given user 12 for the purpose of indexing. The two-dimensional representation is also suitable for use when, for example, you want to find individual members of the group within the group identifier 40a. The three-dimensional representation is easily displayed by clicking on the two-dimensional representation, when additional details of the identifiers 40 of the user 12 are required.
It is seen that in the case of a three-dimensional representation, block 1 can be used to represent the face of the user 12 (which can be accompanied by a photograph, image, drawing, etc.), and thus, it is easy to see the image of his face preferred by user 12 or current important aspects "public face" of the user. Block 2 can be used to represent the "middle area" of user 12 and, therefore, can be accompanied by an image or icon of the heart - this will allow user 12 to demonstrate that, for example, he says "from the bottom of his heart" or takes things "close to his heart". In this case, block 3 can be used to represent other parts of the message content or parts of user 12, for example, the “stomach” of user 12, etc., and therefore can be accompanied by an icon or image of the stomach, which will allow user 12 to demonstrate what they say "internal instincts", etc.
Of course, many other variations of visual indicators can be used in the present invention, and therefore all such alternative designs are encompassed by the present invention.
10b is a preferred visual indicator illustrating a method according to which groups and / or networks can be created in accordance with any of the communication methods and / or systems of the present invention. Preferred visual indicators and associated identifiers 40 are particularly suitable for an indexing system in accordance with a preferred embodiment of the invention.
It can be seen in this drawing that identifiers 40, 40a, 40b can be displayed in various ways to illustrate the way in which groups can be created. In option (i) it is seen that the identifier 40 of user 12 is itself presented in two-dimensional form, while in versions (ii) - (iv) it is seen that the set of identifiers 40 of user 12 are interconnected in various ways for display or visual demonstration groups (ii), communities (iii) and networks (iv) that can be formed or created according to the present invention.
As mentioned above with regard to the creation of community or group identifiers 40a, if the community curator wants to make the community identifier 40a public, other members of this community can choose whether the subject of their dialogue (identifier 40) belongs to the direction. If so, they can contact the “Referral Page” (not shown) of the project website 1, and thus expand their contacts and access to members (users 12) of the wider community with similar interests.
On the corresponding “Destination Page” (not shown) of the project website 1, user 12 can preferably: (1) see, for example, a “tree” with: (i) different “branches” that show different directions (for example, environment, music, street, humanity, sports, etc.) and / or (ii) see community identifiers placed on trees - in this case, the tree becomes a large file system with easily identifiable information associated with user groups 12; (2) click on one of the community icons or other identifiers 40a to go to that community and contact information and other users 12 in areas of interest to the user 12 (each group of interest will have a specific icon or other identifier 40a, which may have subgroups for further specification); (3) send a proposal for a new branch or a new group of interest and be able to use its own community page and links until the new group of interest is authorized and placed on the "Referral Page"; (4) follow the link back to the language pages and identifier emblems to identify things that are of interest to the user 12, or to identify the symbols for the group of interest; (5) use your identifier as an icon to manage and drag it to various branches of interest; (6) choose whether he wishes to accept information on related: (i) phenomena; (ii) websites of interest; (iii) major events affecting their community; and / or (iv) discussion forums on topics of interest; (7) to see that the group of interest to him is “highlighted” (or marked by another visual indicator) when there is new information or news posted on the “Destination Page” related to the group of interest; and / or (8) mark one or more rectangles to turn off the request for the type (s) of information (see clause 6 above).
Users 12 of such a “Referral Page” will be able to reach specific users 12 of the group of interest. Users 12 will be able to see the identifier emblems for those users who have posted their identifier emblems “for general viewing” and follow the link to get in touch directly with those members of the group of interest who have chosen open access for their contact details.
According to yet another aspect, the present invention can also provide users of an online social network, such as Facebook users, with the opportunity to become users 12 of a system 10 project as follows (this is just an example): (i) an individual can see a project icon, label or other identifier 40b on the social page friend networks (ii) this individual can then take measures to add the project attachment to his own social network page; (iii) the individual clicks “add”, as a result of which he gets to the page and asks for access to information - then the application is installed and placed on the profile page of the individual; (iv) as soon as the individual has added the application, he goes to the website 1 of the project; (v) in order to use the website 1 of the project, it may be necessary to go through the registration process; (vi) the individual then becomes the user 12 of the system 10 and can create a language, pictograms, and other identifiers 40, as described above; (vii) then user 12 can update the language status and pictograms created on the user’s own pages 12 within the project website 1, where the subscriber (user 12) can see: (a) his created language and a link to the purpose for which he was created (identifier logo, mood pictograms, contact pictogram, etc.) on the user’s own pages 12 within the website 1 of the project; (b) the logo of your identifier, the mood icon, contact icon, etc .; (c) the community of which he is a member, and (a) publicly available indicators of user sentiment 12, etc .; (viii) then the information is stored in the database 20 and the user profile is updated 12 and (ix) the icon or identifier 40 is placed, working on another platform, for example, on a social network (for example, Myspace or Facebook) and is updated every time you refresh your own pages 12 users within the project website 1.
For a better understanding of the communication method and / or system according to the present invention, several examples of the possible use of the system 10 are described below with reference to Figs. given examples.
EXAMPLE 1:
Man A (12) sends to man B (12) from his data input terminal or communication device 14 a text message ("SMS or MMS 3"), which includes both text and an image, while the image is one or a set of options defined in the device 14, or created by the sender 12 in the device 14, or externally entered into the device 14, for example, through the website 1 of the project.
For example, for the first time, user 12 sends a text or another message, for example this: You make me "ξ" - where "ξ" = tremble.
The receiver accepts the text plus the character (that is, "ξ"). From this moment, the recipient and the sender (user 12) can communicate using only a symbol, without text explaining its meaning. Over time and due to the knowledge gained by all parties as a result of a long exchange of messages, other abbreviations may appear that are known and recognized by both senders and recipients (users 12).
This example can be applied to all types of communication devices 14, taking into account all technical limitations due to delivery vehicles, etc.
11 is a block diagram that illustrates various examples of data structures that can be used (alone or in combination) in accordance with a (personalized) communication system 10 made in accordance with the present invention. In this drawing, the use of text, images or characters as mood profiles and identifiers, or language is represented within blocks (1), (7) and (8) by means of subunits: (1a) - for example, text or alphabetic characters; and (3a) - for example, images or drawn / composite characters.
EXAMPLE 2:
Character strings (i.e., user input) may cause the color of the “wallpaper” in the telephone, terminal, and / or other recipient communication devices 14 to change, for example, this color to match the mood of the sender message. Obviously, it is possible to provide for the wallpaper to return to its original state after a predetermined period of time, for example 60-90 s. The device 14 or the interface of the device 14 can have various settings: for example (i) when I send a sad message, the wallpaper on the phone of the recipient 14 turns blue; or (ii) when I send the specified recipient 12 a message of a different kind, the wallpaper in his phone 14 takes on a specific color. Users 12 can also use and create their own wallpapers within the application software (i.e., within the website 1 of a project or similar application), and then use them as optional wallpapers in addition to colors, etc.
11, the use of color as the “Mood and Identifier” or language profiles is presented inside blocks (1), (7) and (8) by means of a sub-block: (3b) - for example, a color palette.
EXAMPLE 3;
When one user 12 sends to another user 12 an image that was inspired by sound, i.e. based on the sound, the partner or users 12 within the selected group can, upon request, by clicking on the button, hear the original sound that inspired the image. And again, this increases the efficiency of the search process in the communication process, causes constant interest and amuses users.
11, the use of images and sounds as “Mood and Identifier” or language profiles is represented inside blocks (1), (7) and (8) by means of sub-blocks: (2) - for example, sound (2a) or music (2b) and (3a) —for example, images.
EXAMPLE 4:
Similarly, in the case of groups in a social network environment, young people, even within the current restrictions, have already found a way to express themselves in their own language - by means of abbreviations, for example, atm (at the moment - at present), lol (laugh out loud - laugh out loud), or through existing characters, such as emoticons (emoticons) provided by service providers, such as MSN and Skype.
The present invention takes a further step towards providing users 12 with the opportunity to accurately express their condition. Teenagers and young people often try to understand what they are and to which "clan" they want to belong to. The present invention provides them with a useful tool corresponding to this particular phase of life.
As in Example 1, in Fig. 11, the use of text, images and symbols as “Mood and Identifier” or language profiles is presented inside blocks (1), (7) and (8) by means of sub-blocks: (1a) - for example, text or alphabetic characters (for example, basic emoticons, etc.) and (3a) - for example, images or drawn / composite characters (for example, emoticons).
EXAMPLE 5:
User 12 or various users 12 communicate with each other using the project website 1 or another platform that hosts content for a specific project, or another platform that is licensed for project content or a method for creating an identifier for a personal logo (identity logo), another individual identifier 40 or group identifier 40a, which gives the user 12 a multi-dimensional picture of himself for interacting with friends, colleagues and / or the wider community. An identifier emblem or other identifier 40 quickly identifies the various facets of the user 12 or community and allows the user 12 or community to make more efficient communication over the network. The identifier emblem contains various elements of the language defined by user 12 and the identifier laid out on this emblem (identifier 40), including, but not limited to: symbols, images, sounds, colors, etc., which are important for the viewer (user 12) logo identifier 40.
Thus, within a single image 40, you can quickly transfer a large array of information, including, but not limited to the following: what is supported by user 12; what drives the user 12; what are the interests of user 12; user's favorite colors 12; favorite genres of music for the user 12; whether user 12 is an early bird or an owl; what holidays does user 12 like to participate in; in which interest groups does user 12 participate or would like to participate; whether user 12 likes change or stability; whether the user 12 is communicative or introverted and / or whether the user 12 wishes to participate in communication locally, nationally or globally.
FIG. 12 illustrates an example of a method or process by which individuals can fill out their “Mood and Identifier” profile (8) with different designs from the data available through system 10, that is, shown in FIG. 11. In this drawing, it can be seen that the user can fill out his profile (8) on the project website 1 using “drag and drop” (as indicated by arrows b) of the desired designs from data, for example text, images, etc. (which can be installed by the system or are user-created elements, as shown in the drawing) to your profiles page (8a) within the project website 1, and later move them (as indicated by arrow c) to your profile (8) of the communication device 14 for subsequent use as a communication language, etc.
EXAMPLE 6:
Identity emblems or other identifiers 40 created using the present invention can be equally applied in the corporate field, where other types of information about users 12 and groups within the corporation can be successfully used as quick and easy identifiers. All useful and required information can be easily posted and easily accessed using the project’s website 1, which can enable the corporation to use its staff more efficiently.
The standard organizational structure is hierarchy. At the bottom of the hierarchical ladder, very little is known about the organization's plans and business operations, in addition to its main work.
According to another aspect of the present invention, an organization using the project structure and organization tools and information technology of the project can instead act as a network matrix structure (see FIGS. 13a-15b), where users and employees as well as their participation in projects, etc. inside the corporation. Users 12 can self-organize into project teams that are identified and profiled, while relevant content can be placed where those who can access it can access it. Decisions about who becomes a member of the group and who can post and send content can be made through self-government (as defined by instructions developed by corporate managers, etc.).
The corporation can create its own identifier (identifier 40), which reflects various aspects of the brand of the corporation, specific interests or project groups within the corporation. These identifiers can then be used to represent activities within the corporation.
The identifier emblem or other identifier 40 may be used on various platforms and adapted to provide interconnection within the usual means of communication for users 12 and to always remain readily available as a link.
13-13c show various examples of a graphical user interface GUI 1x (for example, individual web pages of a project website 1) that illustrate a preferred embodiment of a method and / or communication system according to the present invention and which can be used within a corporate structure.
More specifically, these drawings show that for the purpose of visually displaying a corporate organization and its various faces within the 1x GUI, various representations of the organization can be displayed.
On figa it is seen that the three-dimensional "Tree" 550 organization can be shown on the GUI 1x, if the user 12 clicks on the button 552 "Tree" located on this GUI 1x. If button 552 is pressed, user 12 sees various aspects or faces of the "Tree" 550. For example, position 554 may represent a department within the organization, while position 556 may represent the individual identifiers (identifiers 40) of individuals within the organization, and position 558 may represent management structure in department 554.
It can also be seen in this drawing that the “Tree” 550 can optionally be alternatively shown in two-dimensional form (see position 560).
On the right of the 1x GUI, it can be seen that there may be “Tree Panels” 562 that provide users 12 with feedback regarding specific elements of the organization in question.
At the bottom of the display on the 1x GUI, it can be seen that next to the side button 552 "Tree" there may be additional buttons 564 (namely, the button "Browse for Search") and 566 (namely, the button "Three-dimensional advanced viewing) viewing, which is shown in Fig.13b and 13C.
On fig.13b it can be seen that the three-dimensional matrix representation 568 "Search View" for the organization can be shown within the GUI 1x when the user 12 clicks on the button 564 "View Search" located on the GUI 1x. This indicator 568 "Search Search" is a visual representation of the extracted attributes of the organization or individuals, departments, etc., after conducting a search on the organization by entering data with search terms in the field 570 "Search", located in the upper left corner of the indicator 568 " View Search. "
To expand the capabilities of the three-dimensional indicator "Search Search" and / or to expand the interactive capabilities of the specified GUI 1x, a button or icon 572 "Rotation" can be provided, for example, located in the upper right corner of the screen 568 "Search Search". Such a Rotation button 572 allows users 12 to easily rotate the indicator to highlight and more clearly identify the various relationships (elements, etc.) shown on this indicator of the Search View indicator 568.
On the right, it can be seen that within the GUI 1x there may be fields 574 "Search Refinement" 574, which allow users 12 to refine the details of the search by organization, and therefore, the resulting indicator 568 "Search Search", shown on the GUI 1x. To help users understand the provided search tools, the lower right of the 1x GUI may be labeled 576 "Search Tool", which describes the icons, etc. that can be used for search purposes.
13c, it can be seen that the three-dimensional Extended Representation indicator 578 for an organization can be displayed on the 1x GUI when user 12 presses the Three-Dimensional Advanced Representation button 566 located on the 1x GUI. This “Extended View" indicator 578 is a visual representation of an organization in the form of, for example, a room having 5 different surfaces, that is, a ceiling, a left wall, a right wall, a rear wall and a floor, as shown in the drawing.
The front of the “room” is indicated at 580, and the back of the “room” or rear wall is indicated at 582.
The black boxes 584 shown within the Advanced Display indicator 578 can have many purposes, for example, they can indicate links to other rooms, matrices, search result sets, documents and / or groups of documents. These "black squares" can be accessed and organized at the request of users 12 of system 10.
To the right of the 1x GUI, it can be seen that Room Panels 586 can be provided to users 12 to provide feedback on the walls and elements shown on the 1x GUI. Likewise, for user 12 to better understand the elements and / or identifiers displayed on the 1x GUI, an identifier indicator 588 may be located in the lower right of the GUI, providing relevant information for feedback.
14a-14e are various diagrams illustrating in detail examples of individual elements that can be used within the preferred 1x GUI depicted in FIGS. 13a-13c. Namely, FIG. 14a shows various functions of the Light elements 590, showing how variations of brightness, contrast, etc. can be used. in these elements to express different modes or attributes. The Light function works with transparency and brightness. Relevant results have a higher density, irrelevant ones are more transparent, up to extinction. 14b shows various extrusion functions of elements 592, showing how angle expressions, shading, etc., can be used to express different attributes. of these elements. The Extrude function raises or lowers elements along the Z axis relative to the starting position. For example, a raise indicates a degree of relevance, and a decrease may indicate a degree of irrelevance. On figs shows the various functions of the elements 594 "Tilt" (Tilt), showing how to express different attributes you can use the variation of angles, etc. for these elements. Tilt is the rotation of an element about the X axis. The range of available tilt angles is 0-180 degrees, but may be more limited depending on user requirements and taking into account considerations for optimizing functionality and visibility, taking into account differences due to software mismatch (for example : 3D or Flash software). The graphic effect of the tilt is due to both the angle of view and the way the element reflects light.
On fig.14d shows the various functions of the elements 596 "Color" (Color), showing how to express different attributes you can use color variations, etc. of these elements. The color shades of the element are used to indicate the relevance of the search object, i.e. the darker the color, the more reliable or better the search. Colors can be defined by the user, but by default they change from red through yellow to blue. For example, red indicates hot or high relevance, and blue indicates cold or low relevance. Finally, FIG. 14e shows the various functions of the Rotate Z elements 598, showing how variations of rotation, orientation, etc., can be used to express different attributes. of these elements. The element is rotated about the Z axis. The rotation range is 0-180 degrees, but can be limited more depending on the requirements of the user and taking into account considerations for optimizing functionality and visibility, taking into account differences due to software mismatch (for example, 3D software or Flash). The graphic effect of rotation is to highlight elements by placing them at different angles to each other, while any rotated elements can be quickly identified. All settings for graphical functions can be configured by the user.
Obviously, the specific elements 590-598 shown in FIGS. 14a-14e are only examples of suitable elements that can be used in the communication system 10 made according to the present invention. It is understood that many variations are possible, and the invention should not be construed as limited by the specific examples given.
Figa and 15b are given to illustrate in detail the available representations, transition effects or splitting created using the graphical user interfaces GUI 1x (corporate type) shown in figa-13 c, as previously described in relation to the elements, shown, for example, in Fig.14-14e, the present invention should not be construed as limited to the specific examples.
Obviously, many applications are available within the actual or typical search by organization, etc., which can be performed using the Search field 570 located within the Search View indicator 568 in the 1x GUI in FIG. 13b. Any suitable search engine may be used (for example, as described below in Example 18), including existing search applications.
A visual representation of the results, for example, the Search Browse indicator 568 in FIG. 13b, may use a variety of measurement results obtained in the search process. Each dimension can relate to classification information based on a single attribute or on a combination of metadata attributes for search objects.
The visual representation seeks to represent categories through a three-dimensional spatial description of the range of categories. Each category represented by a symbol or image is located in this structure so that all categories can be easily viewed.
Each keyword that is used for search results in such an application of display quality to the category symbol that, according to the specified quality, user 12 can determine the relative degree of coincidence when searching within this category. The quality may be visual, audible, or may relate to some other sensory perception, which may be expressed through computer interface 14. For example, the tilt (“Tilt”) of a character, or element, to a plane may be an indicator of the relative number of matches within a given category. Other qualities may include orientation relative to other characters, color saturation, flicker, or any other visual effect that allows the user to distinguish between different categories.
Each quality can be applied to each symbol of a category at the same time. For example, if three keywords are included in a search, then three different qualities would be used to indicate the relative size of the results for each keyword in each character. Thus, the user 12 is able to distinguish which of the categories contains the greatest number of “matches” for any single keyword or any combination of keywords.
User 12 can select a particular category of interest and go down to a level with finer details within that category to reach a level where each character represents an individual object, such as a document, personal record, or some other object. User 12 can also change attributes (or a set of categories) so that the visual description is based on the results. For example, a source indicator can be used by an organization’s department or department to view categories that can be changed to age classification. In this case, to change the quality indicator, visual indicators or qualities will be recalculated (or pre-calculated data will be used), since a different distribution may result in a different category measurement.
When search results return individual objects representing documents, personal records, or other objects, quality characteristics may be associated with a specific relevance coefficient for such an object relating to each keyword. The mechanism for determining the relevance coefficient may be the same mechanism that is used in the search engine, or may be some mechanism that is used by other available search engines, such as Google, Yahoo, etc.
EXAMPLE 7:
A language created in accordance with the method and / or communication system of the present invention can be used with a biofeedback device, a presence detection sensor, a token, a key card, etc. to personalize the physical environment.
In the case of a device with biological feedback, it can be placed on the fingers of the user 12 to measure his response to certain questions, types of languages, etc. This process can occur, for example: in the game console; in a game that is downloaded to the mobile device 14; in a game that can be downloaded to a mobile device 14 and / or a mobile or portable gaming device 14, which is capable of serving as an interface to other devices 14. It is contemplated that a language that is created or attributed to a user via a biological feedback device is in accordance with the invention can be used as a language for mobile phones, other equipment and / or devices 14.
In the case of a device for detecting presence, it can be worn by users 12 to remotely activate various communication devices 14 when the user is in their vicinity. In this way, personal attributes stored in the presence detection device can instruct devices located in the vicinity of user 12 to change settings, etc. based on the mood of this user 12, the current situation, etc.
When used in an automatic system at home or in a building, the language, mood, and identifier data stored in the presence detector or similar device can be used to control environmental parameters of the house or building, including lighting, temperature, smell, music, images etc.
On Fig shows a block diagram that illustrates how, in accordance with another preferred aspect of the present invention, the personal profile of the user ID 12 can be applied to the physical environment 600.
It can be seen in this drawing that user 12 has, for example, a device 602 in the form of a token or key card with a presence sensor (or other sensor) in which the profile of the personal identifier 40 according to the invention is stored. Owning such a personal identifier device 602 allows a user 12 to remotely control devices 604 within this physical environment 600 as follows: (i) the presence of user 12 (or user groups 12, not shown) is detected within physical location 600 via a receiver / transmitter, or a transceiver 606, or a number of such devices 606, when the device 602 with the capabilities of the presence sensor falls within the range of this transceiver (transceiver transmitters) 606); (ii) after the presence of the user 12 is detected within the environment 600, the information about the personal identifier 40 (stored in the device 602 with the presence sensor) is transmitted to the control system 608 via the transceiver (s) 606, as indicated by arrows d - this can be achieved with using any wired or wireless connection; (iii) then the control system 608 via the network 2 (for example, the Internet) communicates with the identifier storage (database 20) made in the network server 16 of the system 10 - it is preferable that the connection between the control system 608 and the identifier storage 20 be established using encrypted channel using standard secure protocols based on the Internet (for example, SSL, etc.), the control system 608 transmits the personal identifier 40 of user 12 to the identifier storage 20 as a question or request; (iv) the identifier store 20 provides a response to the control system 608 via the network 2, this response includes the characteristics or attributes of the user 12 stored in the store 20 - the attributes of the user 12 are used as the base object for querying the settings of the control system 608 using a suitable search mechanism - the purpose of the request is to establish one or more objects that can be used to determine the configuration of the environment 600, the response to such a request is settings for devices with environment 600 — for example, potential settings that can be returned are the temperature setting of the thermostat 604, music played by the music device 604, and / or the configuration of the curtains in room 600 (the specific settings requested depend on the capabilities and configuration of the particular environment Wednesday 600); and (vi) then, the control system 608 issues commands to the relevant device (s) 604 located within the physical environment 600 to configure it, as indicated by arrow e.
The physical environment 600 may be a room in a personal residence, apartment, hotel, etc. and / or in any other place where the presence of user 12 can be determined in accordance with the present invention, as described above. Similarly, the detection of the presence of the user 12 within the environment 600 can be achieved by any suitable means, for example, a device 602 in the form of a token connected by radio waves to the transceiver 606, or device 602 in the form of a key card required to pass through the entrance door system ( that is, the transceiver 606x in FIG. 16).
Therefore, the invention enables users 12 to interactively personalize equipment, household appliances and / or other home objects 604 that are adapted for use with the above system, so that users 12 can more fully personalize their home environment 600 using their chosen language (identifier 40) and personalize the environment using personally selected structures, smells, colors, symbols and / or other elements of the language, etc.
In an alternative configuration (not shown) in the case of a particular hotel, user 12 can visit the project page for that hotel within the project website 1 to inform the hotel in advance of his personal attributes, etc. Thus, the hotel in advance receives a notification of identifiers, mood, etc. user 12, so that the hotel can perform all the settings within the hotel room of user 12 according to the wishes of this user.
EXAMPLE 8:
The language created by the system 10 according to the present invention can be determined during the game, while the game user 12 may be asked a series of questions that defines the characteristics of the user identifier, which allows you to put these characteristics in the identifier logo, mood icon and / or other identification product (identifier 40), which provides a means for quickly and efficiently identifying user 12 at a plurality of levels.
The game, through a series of questions and answers to them by user 12, can also attribute a number of language elements to this user 12, so that they can then be used as a language for use in mobile phones and / or other devices 14. This process can occur through the game console 14, through a game that is downloaded to the mobile device 14, through a game that can be downloaded to the mobile device 14, or through a mobile or portable gaming device 14 that allows interaction interact with other devices 14. The language that is created or attributed to the user 12 through the game, can be used as a language for use in mobile phones and / or other equipment or devices 14.
For example, FIG. 17 is a flowchart illustrating how various programming and / or production services (e.g., game consoles, etc., as shown by block 19) can interact and be used in accordance with yet another preferred embodiment. method and / or communication system according to the present invention. In the context of this example, FIG. 17 shows a user “T” who is a “player”. User T is an element of the working group space (block 6) for Association G.
User T looked at various game templates within the Programming Template (block 4) and places in the working group space (block 6) a proposal to create a new game based on the impressions his friends received during the weekend when they created a lot of files related to entertainment.
The proposal was enthusiastically accepted, and the next user "S" is appointed moderator of the new WYde game. Using his higher degree of access, user S gets access to the media elements for the game (block 9), becomes the project manager of the game based on Production Directives (block 3), and interested users continue the process of creating a language intended for inclusion in the game. A new game is recorded on the basis of production directives (block 3) and the language of users 12. The language of users 12 is checked for suitability by the environmental management system (block 8). The final version is then sent to user S in the Production function (block 12) for approval, after approval is sent back to the User Interface (block 11) and finally published on game consoles and / or in computer devices (blocks 18 and / or 19).
EXAMPLE 9:
The sender (user 12) sends the sound of a barking dog over the telephone 14 to another user 12, while the sender 12 chooses whether to send a real bark, a visual image of the bark or even an image related to the bark that describes the intentions of the sender. If the recipient 12 is a partner of the sender 12, then they know whether barking “Come home, I miss you” or “Your place in the doghouse” - this abstract expression gives personality to the usual means of communication of user 12 and establishes a certain degree of intimacy, then there are only couples who know what this language means; and since we all lack time in modern life, the invention allows the user to quickly tell the partner: “I know what you like,” or “I share your feelings” inside a very short message in an individual and funny way.
11, the use of sounds, images, text or symbols as “Mood and Identifier” profiles or a language is presented within blocks (1), (7) and (8) by means of subunits: (1a) - for example, text; (2) - for example, sound (2a) or music (2b); and (3a) - for example, images or drawings.
EXAMPLE 10:
User 12 sends a message to his station or registers on the website 1 of the project or in another place where the content of the project is posted for use, while the website fixes the settings and interacts with future incoming emails of all users 12 or with other communicators 3 during the day or another time period. Other users 12 who interact with the first user 12 are informed about the mood of the first user 12, their level of employment and / or provide any other information that the first user 12 wishes to determine so that they know about these conditions before establishing communication with the first user 12. Settings can be changed by the first user 12 during the day as the mood and level of employment of the first user 12, etc., change.
Thus, people seeking to get in touch with the first user 12 will be aware of the mood of the first user 12 and the relevant circumstances, which will provide a more effective connection.
EXAMPLE 11:
Users 12 can be provided with such options for personalization and interactive creation of their own language for use in communication devices 14 (and any other types of equipment) that provide personalization for user 12. This enables corporations and their staff to interactively personalize equipment and interfaces for equipment, working and trading environment. This can increase the ease and effectiveness of using the language and interactions within the organization, strengthen the brand of the company and / or attract staff to create the language of the company for use within the corporation.
Obviously, this preferred embodiment of the invention can be included in the examples of corporate-based operating structures shown in GUI's 1x in FIGS. 13a-13c.
EXAMPLE 12:
The communication system 10, made according to the present invention, can provide employees of the corporation (users 12) with tools for expressing their mood, and corporations with the ability to use data taken from the “history” of employee mood for a certain period of time to be included in surveys on the study of employee satisfaction etc. Such a system can work, for example, to study the degree of employee satisfaction in real time using project tools that allow you to: (i) identify the characteristics of each employee in question and (ii) at the same time convey the mood of each employee for subsequent analysis and generalization.
Data collected using this method and system to create mood icons, etc., can be used to create reports for corporations. Previous mood icons can be stored in archives so that corporations can optionally view the history of a user's mood changes in conjunction with the context.
Obviously, this preferred embodiment of the invention can be incorporated into examples of corporate-based operating structures shown in GUI's 1x in FIGS. 13a-13c.
EXAMPLE 13:
The sender creates an excerpt of the message, including karaoke, on the website 1 of the project or on another platform that hosts the content of the project or for which it is licensed to use the project creation method for the purpose of interactive use as a means of communication. A website 1, another platform or database stores various snippets of accompaniment tracks that are separated by different levels of difficulty, and various sounds that user 12 can use to create his own music passage. User 12 can select his own passage of a song, record his voice, select or record sounds, and send the result in the form of sound for the purposes of the present invention.
This process can occur through the game console 14, through a game that is downloaded to the mobile device 14, through a game that can be downloaded to the mobile device 14, or through a mobile or portable game device 14 that allows you to interact with other devices 14. Language, which is created or attributed to user 12 using, for example, the website 1 of a project or game, can be used as a language for use in mobile phones and / or other equipment or devices 14.
As part of the language settings, user 12 can create his own song or a piece of the song by singing to the accompaniment located on the website 1 of the project. User 12 can select a track based on his musical level and / or based on his own taste. He can also use songs, music or extracts of songs that reflect his mood, etc.
FIG. 18 is a flowchart that illustrates how a personal user identifier profile created in accordance with any of the communication methods and / or systems of the present invention can be used by a karaoke system 650 within a preferred embodiment of the invention.
FIG. 18 shows that in order to use the karaoke system 650, user 12 may be required to identify himself in this system 650 by, for example, entering identifying information (identifier 40) as an input identifier or by entering his identifier 40 personally or automatically through some device which is connected to the karaoke system.
Module 652 of the karaoke system 650 allows selection and suggestion of tracks using which user 12 may wish to record or sing. This module 652 may be provided to user 12 through an appropriate user interface (not shown) integrated into or associated with karaoke system 650.
The Choice and Offer module 652 is associated with a search engine 654 (which may be identical or similar to the search engine described below in Example 18) within the karaoke system 650, for example, to request recommended tracks for a specific user 12. Module 652 supports query parameters including user identification (identifier 40) and any other restrictions that user 12 can set through a user interface (not shown) of karaoke system 650.
Search engine 654 issues a request through a (preferably secure) communication channel on network 2 to the identifier store (database 20) of system 10, as shown by arrow f. The request contains user ID 40 and specific attributes that are of interest to the karaoke system 650. A request sent to the identifier store 20 will return the attributes that are required for the karaoke system 650 to the search engine 654, as shown by arrow g. Access to the store of identifiers 20, and therefore to the requested specific attributes, can be controlled through the policies that are carried out within the store of identifiers 20. Thus, to permit sending a request from the karaoke system 650, the user 12 may need to first access the identifier store 20. This can be done through some other interface (not shown) or through an identification marker of the karaoke system 650 (not shown), which is known only to user 12 and which allows this user 12 to access the karaoke system 650 one-time.
The returned attributes are used as the base object for issuing a request within the karaoke system 650 to the song metadata block 656 to search for songs that provide the best match with the attributes specified by the user (base object). These may include musical range, key, rhythm and / or musical tempo. The local history data base 658 is within the karaoke system 650, which allows using previous recommendations and choices to influence the search as a basis for future searches. For example, user 12 may search for songs "reminiscent" of a previously selected song. In this search, the previous song is used as the base object and subject of the search.
Then, the set of candidate songs is returned to user 12 through a user interface (not shown) so that user 12 can perform some actions with them, while all actions are saved for later use, as described above.
According to the present invention, a preferred mode of operation of the karaoke system 650 can be formulated as follows: (i) user 12 chooses whether he wants to use a music passage, someone’s singing track, or prefers to sing himself; (ii) if user 12 wants to sing, he can choose for himself the level of abilities (beginner, intermediate, advanced); (iii) user 12 selects a song (which may have several categories depending on the user's vocal abilities, etc.) and selects the length of the passage (which can be selected, for example, from three different sentences depending on the technical capabilities of said device 14) , then records its own voice using a microphone (not shown) connected to the communication device 14, and (iv) saves the song or extracts of the song into the files of the user language 12 (identifier 40), after which it can be downloaded to the mob User phone 14 of user 12, etc., if he wishes to use these files in the future.
The process of creating music by a user may also be performed by a mobile or other gaming device 14.
19 is a flowchart that illustrates how a personal user identifier profile created in accordance with any of the communication methods and / or systems of the present invention can be used in a music recording device 700 in accordance with a preferred embodiment. inventions. A music recorder 700 is suitable for mobile recording songs associated with selected accompaniment tracks, etc.
In this drawing, it can be seen that the mobile user 12 can select a track with accompaniment using the application interface 14x for a mobile device, such as a screen, keyboard, etc. Then, the selected accompaniment track is loaded into the mobile device 14 for immediate or later use, as indicated by the arrow h. The accompaniment track may include a voice track, allowing the user 12 to sing along if he does not know the words. This voice track can be deleted by combining the track with voice recording and the track with accompaniment.
The user 12 may start a “recording session” in the mobile device 14. In this case, the application in the device 14 can play the accompaniment track (see 2a) and simultaneously record the track with the user's voice through the microphone 14y in the device 14. Then, the device 700 for recording music or combines the voice with the accompaniment track into a new music file in the device 12 , or user 12 may select the option of sending the recorded voice to a service that provides for combining recordings, as indicated by arrow i.
Then, the music recording apparatus 700 can combine the voice track with the accompaniment track using various signal processing methods, adjusting the track to tone, speed, and introducing additional effects to improve the quality of the voice track with respect to the accompaniment track. The resulting file with the combined voice track and the accompaniment track can then be sent to user 12 via the delivery channel of a mobile device, such as MMS, etc., or to a source application (not shown), as indicated by arrow j. This file can then be used as a ringtone for calls, etc. in the phone 14 or may find another application at the request of the user 12.
EXAMPLE 14:
According to yet another aspect, the communication method and / or system of the present invention allows for interconnection with other programming of media content, for example, as part of television, film and / or other projects, with new environments that will be associated with the present invention. Language (including symbolic symbols, images, sounds, movements and / or other means of expressing feelings) can be used as part of the content of programs and / or projects. The semantic meanings of the language used will be determined within the context of the content for specific programs, but the proposals for television and / or new media will be interactive, and viewers may be invited to participate in the development of linguistic meanings.
The symbols that form part of the basic programming structure will be the beginning - viewers will be invited to participate in the formation of feedback, voting and submitting proposals for program content, for example through interaction with: (i) an interactive website; (ii) mobile phones and / or similar devices 14 and / or (iii) social networks. Platforms for other media will be interconnected, which will provide the audience with the research process - that is, in addition to the entertainment values of the program, there is an incentive for viewers to take an active approach, learn about themselves new things and take the first steps for active expression. In this context, the invention is the development of an interactive evolutionary method for creating a language for platforms with various interconnected media.
The invention focuses on the method by which broadcast or digital media input by individuals or groups is collected online, moderated, created and distributed among a plurality of devices capable of handling this media.
An advantage over the known methods for creating digital media is that it provides the formation of a structured workflow from a variety of source devices within one or both of the models that perform: (i) fitting to a predetermined production template and / or (ii) following all areas of production.
Media elements may include any or all of the following: video elements; audio elements; computer graphics elements for sequential playback and production;
Images; text data and avatar data and / or style parameters - for example, colors, fonts and / or smells / aromas.
Through a central application, users 12 can see what type of elements are being searched for and, with the help of a guided technological process, can either individually participate or make a collective contribution to the creation of the final media product for limited or wide distribution.
Producers are able to set the scope for a media product and search for input data using an online application that matches the list of manufactured products and / or the range of production directives.
As shown in FIG. 17, a corresponding manufacturing system may include:
(a) Programming infrastructure (block 1), which can be a software application that contains the following logical functions: Process and access control unit (block 2), which is able to organize key functions in the application in conjunction with normal consumption and publication processes, for example in a content management system (CMS) (block 13), while the functions of this system (block 13) are implemented using such a standard programming technique for application programming interface (including the option of web-based sites) that content items can be loaded into the preliminary workspace for further editing prior to submission for moderation, further production and publication, this function (block 13) also controls the access of users 12 to the elements contained in the production system, providing read permission and / or a record based on the fact that the user is an individual participant or a member of the group (in the case of a group, participants can view and, depending on the permission, edit the data, enter ennye other group members); A block (block 3) of production directives - which may be the workspace in which production directives from the producer of the show are made visible to individuals and groups wishing to participate - including such directives as television formats, proposed localizations, proposed styles, and may include detailed working schemes for the final media product (for example, order / length of scenes, etc.); A program template (block 4), which can be a media product template and which can include drag-and-drop slots for inserting various media elements in order to create final media products; Private workspace (block 5), which may be the area visible to the individual user and which contributes to the media product, user 12 sees the previously entered objects and their status in the full technological process; The block (block 6) of the group workspace, which may be the area where groups can interact when entering objects, you can add media elements, you can build up previously entered elements, group members can express their opinion on the changes made; A public workspace block (block 7) —that can be an area where all individuals who have access to the application can see “publicly” entered objects before further production steps are taken — access to workspaces (positions 5-7) preferably allows to all users with authorized access to read and / or write (to individual users, groups or all users of the application); The media data quality control unit (block 8) can be a function that, together with the content management system (block 13) and the production directive block (block 3), can check the quality of the media data for their suitability for further steps in the production process, said verification includes verification of: the source format (for example, a test for suitability for transcoding to other formats for transmission); lengths (for example, in accordance with the rules of the production process); initial quality (for example, the level of audio or video noise in the source media) and / or source content (for example, for the presence of inappropriate content - that is, images, sounds and / or words) - while the function of the quality control of media data (block 8) provides user manual through the User Interface (block 11) regarding the suitability of the input media and as a result may decide to accept or reject the media or conditional acceptance, resulting in warnings about possible problems x that may occur in subsequent phases of production and which are caused by the original media; Elements of media data (block 9), which may be a library of media objects provided by a producer for use by depositors, are used to control the use of rights to digital products and to prevent unauthorized copying of this material, i.e. to prevent misuse (media objects, including: graphics, video screensavers, both initial and final, - music, sounds, images and / or avatar information), standard production methods can preferably be used; User language block (block 10), which may be a library of language elements (for example, text, sounds, smells, colors, music, video elements, etc.) that characterize production and may include objects based on individual contributions; and / or a User Interface (block 11), which may be a function for presenting the application to several possible devices and channels (for example, positions 16-21 in FIG. 17);
All data coming through the programming infrastructure (block 1) can be marked with metadata from users 12 or the Production function participating in the input (block 12, see below) and can be stored together with the original media in the Content Management System (13);
(b) A production function (block 12), which may be a fully or partially manual or fully automated function that controls the entire technological process for the production of a media product (including content moderation), and which may have interfaces to: Programming infrastructure (block 1) - to develop Production Directives (block 3), Media elements (block 4) and to verify the process; Content Management System (block 13, see below) - for the further production of a media product after the technological process built into the Content Management System (block 13), i.e. for moving objects from the area of production preparation to the Content Delivery System (block 14, see below) for its distribution;
(c) Content management system (block 13) (or CMS, Content Management System), which can be a standard content management system used to store user data in private, group and public workspace designs, and is intended for managing and producing network or broadcast media products, - may include the ability to transcode the source media into a number of formats suitable for the target channels and devices (e.g. Documentum), and
(d) a content delivery system (block 14), which can be a standard content delivery system used to collect and manage the distribution of media in formats suitable for the target device, based on the needs of the media distribution block (block 15), - distribution of media can carried out through: broadcast television, cable television, interactive television, game consoles, online web services, mobile devices and / or mobile / portable game consoles, etc.
The Programming Infrastructure application (block 1) can be accessed through a number of devices and methods using the User Interface function (block 11). These devices and methods may include, but are not limited to: a browser or client running on Network Handheld Game Consoles (block 16), for example, devices such as Sony PSP or Nintendo DS; a browser or client running on the Mobile device (block 17); a browser or client application running in a computer device (block 18); a browser or client application running in the Game console (block 19), for example Microsoft XBox, Sony PS3 or Nintendo Wii; a browser or client operating via the Interactive Television System (block 20); and / or a browser or client operating via a cable television system (block 21), such as a set-top box, etc.
Communication between different devices, as indicated by arrows k, can be provided by any suitable means, but is preferably supported by the industry standard Internet Protocol, for example TCP / IP, in the range of available networks (for example, wireless local area network (WLAN), digital subscriber line (DSL) , cable network, cellular network and / or digital television channel).
For example, user Y is a member of the Workspace (block 6) of the group for Program X and has access level 2 because he is the moderator of the group. User Y has a special interest in music, actively contributes data and is well acquainted with the Production Directives (block 3). User Y downloads the drum beat from the project website 1 (see FIG. 1 and FIG. 2) to his mobile phone 14 (or block 17 in FIG. 17). He then uses the drum rhythm as the basis for adding other musical sounds, and records bird singing on top of the drum rhythm. When he finishes adding to the music file and considers it completed, he will upload the completed file to the area of the block (block 2) for process control and editing access, and then the file will fall into the Workspace (block 6) of the discussion group.
The group decides that the track is most suitable for the character Z in the set of Program X. The file is checked for suitability by using the media management environment function (block 8) in the programming infrastructure (block 1), after which the music file and the Workspace comments (block 6) of the group are sent Production function (block 12) for approval. For future reference, the music file and its components can be stored within the User Language (in the standard of Program X indicating that the author of the file is User Y) in the Programming Infrastructure (block 12).
In another example, User "L" is a member of the Workspace (block 6) group for self-programming. He created a group with friends. He has access level 1, as he is the moderator of the group and curator of programming. User L checks the available media elements for use in contributions (block 9), checks the available Templates (block 4) for programming, and puts his program suggestions in the Workspace (block 6) of the group for his friends. His friends look at their stored language elements in the block (block 10) of the user's language and place the details in the Workspace (block 6) of the group. Friends check the files for compliance with the Production Directives (block 3), transfer the files through the block (block 8) of the Media Quality Control and after confirming that the files are suitable, create an identification icon, assign it to the project and its files, and place the language files in the icon ( identifier) within the area (block 2) of the process control and access. Then other friends can use this process when compiling the content necessary to create elements that match the template (block 4). After the program is completed, it is published.
EXAMPLE 15:
The corporation may issue a license for the method and / or associated products created using the present invention to provide efficient indexing, registration and / or storage of information using multisensor identifiers 40-4c of the project created by the corporation, its staff, and if there is data input from the project administrator. Such an indexing and registration system works in a non-linear way, that is: visually the library map provides large “branches” of subject materials, links, etc. As user 12 penetrates deeper and deeper, the information falls into the previous branch, so user 12, when dealing with a micro-problem, always sees the full picture or macro perspective.
This process allows users 12 to efficiently compare and index materials using symbolic and multisensor icons, etc., so that user 12 always has multi-level reference points when searching for relevant information. The internal information network can be connected to the public external website 1 of the project, including for continuous coordination with the public proposal within the project from networks and communities with "multifaceted" identification (see, for example, Figs. 12-15b).
EXAMPLE 16:
A unique visual indicator allows corporation members or other users to simply organize access and placement of specific information while providing access to a comprehensive picture and information about it (see, for example, figa to 13c).
EXAMPLE 17:
Embedding attribute identifiers (e.g., mood identifier 40 or other attributes of an individual, group (40a) or corporation) in an existing organizational means of user profiling 12 is possible in many cases, for example: in private clubs, air travelers clubs, medical identifiers, etc. . At present, organizations, such as air travel program operators, are profiling clients parameters within a client card and associated database. When placing an order, customer preferences, such as diet, etc., are taken into account.
Using project attribute identifiers 40b, a corporation can far better meet the expectations of its members based on the information embedded in their identifiers. Their current mood and / or the whole range of preferences can be easily saved and accessed through the website 1 of the project (or the website of the person who received the license (not shown), etc.).
Obviously, this preferred embodiment of the invention can be included in the examples of corporate-based operating structures shown in GUI's 1x in FIGS. 13a-13c.
EXAMPLE 18:
According to yet another aspect, the communication method and / or system of the present invention provides a “Search Engine” 800 (see, for example, FIGS. 20 or 23), which may be a function used to categorically match user attributes, etc.
20 is a simplified block diagram illustrating an example of a search engine 800 that may be used in the present invention. On Fig shows a sequence of operations to illustrate an example of the process of creating a query for use in the preferred search engine shown in Fig. Finally, for the purpose of illustration, FIG. 22 shows a more detailed block diagram of a search engine 800.
Figures 20-22 show that user 12 can determine the request object (for example, he can search for: a person, a document, a group, a project, an organization, a television show, a video film, an image, a sound and / or any multimedia file, another attribute, a file or object) using the search engine 800, and then look for a match with the identifier in this range of objects.
Search engine 800 uses search engine 802 to select aspects of an identifier of an individual, group, project, or corporation suitable for the desired search. Then, user 12 can select a specialization attribute, etc. from a certain list, and then set the type of the desired result (for example, file type, etc.). This process allows you to refine the current search, which begins with the selection of attributes for a specific person, group, object, document, file, etc. For example, if the project manager wishes to arrange for the removal of project participants, he can: (i) enter the project identifier (identifier 40b), which covers all identifiers of individuals (identifiers 40), and select the project; (ii) select what he wants, such as “deletion”, and (iii) add specialization attributes “purpose” and “type of activity” and / or add other arbitrary keywords to further refine the search.
In another example, user 12 may wish to find some organization, wanting to invest in an organization with high reliability. User 12 may be familiar with the Project and the certification process by which corporations are given certification and their identifiers are given a symbolic designation when organizations meet the requirements of such certification. User 12 enters the design reliability symbol into the search query area (as indicated by arrow m in FIG. 20 and block 850 in the case of the preferred query creation process, as shown in FIG. 21) and may add that the preferred match for the organization entity is location "Australia" and / or, optionally, other keywords. The result of this search will be a list of corporations with certification of reliability. In addition to creating a “list” of search results, search engine 800 can also provide a visual indicator by which user 12 can identify all corporations with such certification and at a glance see the search result according to additional refinements and / or other keywords.
When using the latter search option in the case of a search engine 800 that is integrated into an existing organizational or corporate infrastructure (see FIG. 23, a block diagram illustrating the foregoing is shown), the multifaceted graphical functions allow a complete and accurate comparison of organizations for the user 12 The user 12 can also go to additional specific organization parameters by pressing the button 566 "Three-dimensional advanced view" (see Fig.13c), which will provide much more details for the specified corporation, and / or links to material with which the user 12 will be able to make a qualified choice.
In Fig.20 it is seen that the start of the search occurs when the user 12 requests a search from the corresponding interface, as indicated by the arrow m. This can happen through a multifunctional search interface, such as a web browser, or through an application-specific search interface that is built into the application. Issuing a search request to search engine 800 requires that user 12 directly or indirectly identify several aspects of the request.
Various aspects of the query that can be determined for use in the search engine 800 are shown in the process 840 of creating a query in FIG. 22 and include: (a) a query object (block 850), which is the type of object or types of objects that the user is looking for 12, for example, user 12 can search for other people, documents, multimedia objects and / or organizational units, while the query creation interface 804 (see FIG. 22) in the search engine 800 is an interface that allows identification ti targets; (b) selecting a Base Object (block 852), which is the object used as the basis for the search — in other words, this is the object whose attributes will be used to find the objects in the data store 806 by the search engine 800 to determine relevant and / or relevant objects that form the search results; a rating calculation algorithm (see block 808 in FIG. 22) can be used to determine how each stored object satisfies the various attributes of the Base object, and to calculate the rating, which is used to determine whether to include the object in the search results, and / or position (or rank) of the object in the list of search results; (c) as an option, you can set restrictions on the attributes of the target object (block 854) - for the target objects, there can be any specific restrictions that allow search engine 802 to localize the corresponding objects, for example, if a person is defined as the target, then the attribute of that person ( for example, age) can be further limited by a set of values (for example, the age range of 30-40 years), these additional restrictions can be applied using the operations AND or OR, as well as using the options "ANYWHERE OH "and" ALL "for restrictions, which allows the user 12 or the system to issue a restriction that extends or narrows the search space; and finally, (d) any additional keywords that can be used in the search can be included in the generated query (block 856).
Then, the created request (block 858) can be transmitted to the search engine 802, which conducts a search and displays the search results, as indicated by arrow n in Fig. 22.
The search results are returned to the requester or user for display (see positions 12, 14 in FIG. 22). The display mechanism may not be dependent on the search engine 800 and may be a text listing, a set of objects in a readable format that is supported by the system, or an application-specific data set that can be used by a visual display of search results, as described below.
Integration with the visual search component can occur through the submission of a request through data entered directly through the visual search interface or through actions taken by user 12 in the visual search interface, for example, by clicking on a symbol to move deeper into a given specific category. The results from the search engine 800 are output to the search visual display engine 810 (FIG. 23) as a data set in a format suitable for the mechanism to present the results to the user 12. This may require the visual display engine 810 to convert the results to a format that is better suited to visually present the results, as described above in relation to other embodiments of the invention.
Therefore, these examples demonstrate that the system 10 of the present invention provides users 12 with a new and extremely personalized means of communication using any suitable communication device or application 14.
Although not discussed above in any of the specific examples, it is apparent that any one or more of the data structures shown in FIGS. 11 or 12 can be used for Mood and Identifier profiles or for creating a language in accordance with the present invention. These additional data structures include, but are not limited to: texture, temperature, odor, and / or movement. The only restriction on the use of such data structures may lie in the capabilities of specific communication devices 14 used by users 12 of system 10.
This aspect of the present invention relies on the creation of a language for telephone communications or Internet-based messages, covering a wide range of expressions of feelings. In addition to creating and using the language, this makes it possible to create data and store it in a profile structure called "Profiles" Mood and Identifier "and Language" in Fig. 11 (block 1). It includes elements that reflect and communicate the identity (identification information) and / or mood of the individual 12, including, but not limited to, the following elements: Text (1a); Audio (consisting of sub-elements: Sound samples (2a) and Music (2b)); Design (contains images (3a), Color palette (3b) and fonts (3c)); Touch (that is, data for creating tactile feedback through, for example, Texture (4a) and Temperature (4b)); Smell (5) and / or Movement (6).
The language "Mood and Identifier" can be set in advance before use (by system 10) or can be created in real time during interactions between users 12, with the ability to save selected language elements in all cases.
Earlier, in the field of conventional communication, attempts were made to represent user states through emotion icons and basic text (see, for example, Yahoo Instant Messaging, Skype, etc.) both for networked computer devices and mobile devices. In addition to this, there are a number of media sharing tools (such as MMS, email, social networking services, etc.) that enable the transfer of a wide range of media data, including sounds, text and images. However, these well-known types of communication are very static and unstructured and rely on objects from various sources, the exchange or integration of which is not easy to organize, which means that it is impossible to create a common language, that is, all objects remain fragmented.
The present invention significantly expands the possibilities of effectively transmitting the full range of expressions, emotions and status between individuals and / or groups. It provides full integration of language elements and allows you to create a structured language for repeated use between individuals or groups.
More specifically, in the case of the system 10 made according to the present invention, the “text” may be a string of characters reflecting the mood of the individual 12 and entered by the individual through the user interface (either from the project website 1 or from the communication device (14)).
The “sound” (i.e., block 2a in FIG. 11) may be a standard-length digitized audio signal and coding scheme created or selected by an individual 12 to be included in a mood profile. The music elements (block 2b) can be digitized musical information with a certain length and coding scheme and can be reproduced during viewing, for example, contact information (page 46 in fig. 4a) in identifiers 40, in the process of initiating contact with an individual 12 (that is, it can be a melody for calls, etc.), during communication or at the end of communication with an individual 12. During playback, the music element (2b) can be combined with the sound element (2a), etc. .d.
Elements (3a) of the "image" can be digitized graphic images created or selected by the individual 12, that is, they can be, for example, photographs, videos, drawings or animations of a certain size and color intensity, intended to be included in mood profiles, etc. . Similarly, elements (3b) of the “color palette” can be selected by the individual 12 to be included in mood profiles, etc. Similarly, font elements (3c) can be used to represent a group of fonts used in the presentation of Mood and Identifier profiles, etc.
The elements (or data) “texture” (4a) and “temperature” (4b) can be stored in profiles and used in cases where the participating communication device 14 can provide tactile feedback based on this data. The ranges and data types of texture and temperature should be standardized, which provides the final set for selection. Such objects can be obtained from images (3a), music (2b) or sounds (2a) created or selected by user 12; for example, the shape of the curve drawn by user 12 can be converted into tactile data that can be affected by a touch surface, a feedback glove, or a similar device.
Odor elements (5) can represent the data used by the device 14, which is capable of converting the selected data into a specific odor. The selection can be standardized as a finite selection set, for example, “pleasant”, “citrus” and / or “smoke”, etc.
Finally, the motion information (6) can be used as a record of dynamic information relating to the movement of the device 14 in space, and dynamic animation or a harmonious combination of other mood elements and identifier. An example of a recorded movement is the recording of the actions of a user 12, in frustration, shaking his phone 14.
An example of the use of various data structures or elements shown in FIG. 11 can be as follows: Susan has this profile: Text = “Today is a beautiful day”; Sound: birds chirping; Sound: Music that is part of Vivaldi's Spring from the Seasons cycle; Design: The image is an image of Susan with a sunny smile; Color palette: a collection of green and yellow colors for use as a background for graphics and text; Touch: The texture is "smooth"; Touch: Temperature - "warm"; Odor = honeysuckle; Movement = The movement transducer periodically slowly moves 3 cm left and right and “scrolls” the text “Today is a beautiful day” to the right and left in green letters on a wavy yellow background.
The individual 12 will have at least 1 profile of the language “Mood and Identifier” - “mood and identifier for the individual” (block 8 in FIG. 11), resulting from a specific selection of profile elements (1). An individual can eventually create a library of profiles that can be selected using conditional codes: that is, p1 is profile 1, i.e. “happy”, or p2 - profile 2, i.e. "nervous", etc.
Individual 12 may be associated with one or more groups. Each group will have a predefined available profile - "mood and identifier for the group" (block 7 in Fig.11). The individual 12 can transfer (as indicated by the arrows in FIG. 11) any data elements from the group (7) to their individual profile (8) via the project website 1 (i.e., organized by the network server 16) or the communication device 14.
As mentioned above, in the case of home or building automation, the Mood and Identifier language data can be used to control the environmental parameters of the home or building, including lighting, temperature, smell, music and image.
All data elements of a given type are interchangeable between all specific "Mood and Identifier" profiles, that is, texture data (4a) from profile "x" for individual "x" can be copied to the central library for reuse by other individuals or groups or can be transferred in profile "y" for the individual "y".
All data is stored in a repository (database 20, etc.), which can be a centralized or distributed database containing profiles "Mood and identifier" and data elements.
As shown in FIG. 12, the data elements can be placed by the individual 12 in the profile (8a) in the communication device 14, for example using the drag-and-drop element (as indicated by arrows b), in the presence of visual feedback showing which elements filled in and which not (using a list, grid or pie chart). After the drag-and-drop operation, a compatibility check is performed so that, for example, the image data falls into the image slot (3a), etc. This can be achieved using standard methods, for example, by tracking the types of the MIME standard , or the file header, or extension types.
In the background, there is a file conversion, if necessary, (for example, converting the image to the correct resolution, color intensity and / or file format). Then the individual 12 can give a name to the completed profile and save it, for example, centrally in the storage (8) of profiles "Mood and identifier".
Obviously, the same or similar process can be used to enter information about the group identifier, etc.
As mentioned above, the profile (8) of the “Mood and Identifier” of the individual is stored in the repository (that is, database 20) within the framework of system 10. As soon as the mood of person A changes, the objects within his profile (8) change by person A through his interaction with the project website 1 and communication devices 14. These interactions can be made through a standard IETF network or using Internet Protocol (IP) communications technology.
The network server 16 of the system 10 coordinates the interaction between the communication devices 14 or the transmission of Mood and Identifier language data. It may include a new network service, a modified version of any typical social network service, or network game services (such as Gamespy) that support personal computers, mobile devices, handheld game devices, or consoles, modified to include the ability to process any Mood and Identifier language data elements during transactions between users 12.
Person B interacting with person A through another communication device 16, etc., will see the profile results (8) of person A on his device 14 (based on hardware support using any of the following): person B can see the text, image ( 3a), tied to a theme by using the colors of the color palette (3b); as the cursor moves through the list, person B can hear sound (2a) and music (2b); person B can use tactile feedback based on the texture (4a) and temperature (4b) data available in the profile.
The actions that person B can take include, but are not limited to: viewing a list of favorite contacts on his device 14; initiating initial communication with person A, for example, by voice call, video call, text message, email, chat, etc .; receiving a signal about initiating communication from person A (voice call, video call, text message, email, chat); person A and person B continue to feel changes in the “Mood and Identifier” profile during the communication process, which is facilitated by the ongoing simultaneous communication session between their communication device 16 and / or the project website 1, etc., carried out by the system 10; and / or during the interaction, elements of the language can be changed / added - for example, add additional sounds to the element of music or sound.
People A or B can be individuals 12 that represent an organization or a media / production network, and their interaction can be stored and used in real time or broadcast on demand, etc.
Network 2 may comprise an extended version of the presence server (18a in FIG. 2), which is capable of receiving presence profile data elements in accordance with the mood and identifier profile data structures (1 in FIG. 11) using, as shown, network solutions or Internet Protocol based solutions.
Industry standards can be used to update the presence status between the extended presence server (18a) and the mobile communication devices (14) and / or the network server (16). Interfaces between these devices can be based on standard approaches of presence control: for example 3GPP TS 23.141 (Technical Specification) Presence service; Architecture and functional description; Stage 2; or, 3GPP TS 24.141 (Technical Specification) Presence service using the IP Multimedia (IM) Core Network (CN) subsystem; Stage 3.
In the mobile communication device 14, the “Mood and Identifier” profiles can be updated either directly from the extended presence control server (18a), for example, directly in the window of the updated contact list in the device 14, or through a network server 16, for example, through interaction based on communication with client or browser.
Currently, standard mobile communication devices and network computers are capable of supporting parallel communication (i.e., a data session and a voice call) through a number of standard technologies, such as 3GPP dual mode, simultaneous PDP contexts, or SIP (session establishment protocol) communication). Therefore, both types of devices are now capable of supporting simultaneous applications (for example, as defined in the MIDP 3.0 standard for mobile devices). Therefore, both such functionalities support the corresponding transfer of information about the identifier of the mood before, during or after interaction in the communication process.
The mood and identifier profile data for the group (block 7 in FIG. 11) is a mixed library including the mood and identifier data elements corresponding to the mood and identifier data structures shown in block (1). As mentioned above, in each group there is a curator with the right to add, delete and edit data (7) of the Mood and Identifier profile. Individuals 12 can add new elements of the Mood and Identifier language to the Mood and Identifier profiles for the group (as well as in the case of an individual) with the only addition that these elements are visible to the group, and in the process of interaction they can be selected, thus creating the language of the group. When a group member wishes to change the data elements, the latter can be represented in his communication device 12, etc., for example, with a list of existing language elements. A member of the group can also search or sort based on the metadata associated with each data item, including the name of the data item, its value, the individual (12) who created the item, the date it was created, or the number of times that item was used, etc. d.
Changes to the language elements can be approved by the group members, and the results can be saved together with the language elements in the network server storage 16 (database 20).
The data (7) of the Mood and Identifier profile may also include a representation of the “average” mood of the group using averaged values for all profiles of individuals making up this group. Averaging rules can be selected by the group’s curator and can include (but are not limited to): instant mood - that is, an average “snapshot” of all moods at the moment; average mood - that is, some kind of averaging based on the use of language data elements for a group for a given time interval (for example, for a day, month, week or year), or any average or instant mood value for a certain subgroup of this group.
Obviously, these groups should be protected by standard security methods to prevent unauthorized access or editing of this data. Similarly, these groups can be laid out through the secure standard procedure of the application programming interface, allowing those authorized to access this data through third-party applications, both for consumers and for business use by a certain group.
The data of the group and individuals are not mutually exclusive, that is, for individual interactions between group members, you can also use the entire range of "Mood and Identifier" data related to individuals and taking into account their membership in the group.
In the context of various aspects of the visual search and visualization of information (i.e., display of a device / network, information and / or identifier), the present invention provides scalability due to the ability of the user 12 to further categorize information or identifiers as necessary, as a result of which the display is controllable and user friendly. This is clearly demonstrated by the separation or transition functions in the visual representations for the corporation shown in FIGS. 13a-15b.
In addition to visual attributes, a language based on other sensory organs can be used, while adding and selecting the indicated other sensory language is based on the content function and is determined by the capabilities of the display device 14.
According to the present invention, information display can be used for the following: (i) for organizational planning; (ii) as a tool for comparison, allowing specific choices or choices for further research; (iii) for the visualization of statistics, that is, it is possible to provide a multifaceted presentation so that various aspects, relevance and overlap become obvious, and / or (iv) since all information and identifiers will have an identification language, identification of the source or home for the object (person, group , document, etc.) within the device or network immediately becomes apparent. For a given three-dimensional visualization tool ("Tree", "Search View" and "Three-dimensional advanced view", shown in Fig.13a to 13c), the user can click the button to go to the place where, for example, within the network or device there is information about a person or document, and see additional material related to this.
Users 12 can adjust the scale as the organization or network grows using the macro / micro functionality provided by the present invention. As the organization or network grows, user 12 adds additional classification levels and matrices that are required, so the visual indicator (see, for example, FIGS. 13a-13c) remains managed by user 12.
The user 12 receives multifunctional perception using visual search and two-dimensional and three-dimensional built-in viewing mechanism, implemented, for example, on GUI 1x interfaces on figa-13c. All information and identifiers can be called "operational", without separation. Thus, the user 12 has multifunctional capabilities and always has, within the limits of his knowledge, a complete picture of what is happening.
Users 12 may have access to a unique display of statistical information using the "Tree" 550 (two-dimensional or three-dimensional representation), while the icons shown on the tree reflect the main categories within the statistical distribution. The user 12 can also touch the “Three-dimensional advanced view” button 566 on the visual indicator, and then move deeper into smaller details in a three-dimensional environment if additional details or posted messages related to the previously mentioned statistics are required.
In the context of television or similar programming interfaces used according to the present invention (see, for example, FIG. 17), in such a television or other programming environment, viewers or users 12 may vote on the degree of satisfaction, game quality and / or other factor using a multifunctional voting system that assigns values to multifaceted attributes. For example, in the case of voting regarding the quality of the game of performers, instead of giving a rating of 1 to 10, viewers or participants can evaluate the game in various ways, for example, in terms of musicality, creativity, personality, freshness, style, etc. .. These various attributes can be compared and used as a visual indicator within the unique system of visual indication implemented in the present invention based on ratings entered by viewers, etc. For example, the backlight function can be used so that viewers can see the intensity of the vote, however, viewers can also see other aspects of the evaluation of the game using other elements (for example: color, tilt, rotation, extrusion, etc., as mentioned in the description figa-14e).
Within the organizational structure, organizations can use the graphical “extrude” function to highlight those members of the organization that are central to the organization’s work, so the main employees of departments can be placed below their department to visually reflect the fact that they are the driving force of the organization. An organization, if it wants to visualize a hierarchy, can track this function at multiple levels. The options for displaying the organization can be an infinite number, and the user can set any of the graphic functions for specific use and organize various combinations of such functions, combining the visual effect with further differentiation of categories. The extent of these possibilities will depend on the visualization technology used - for example, three-dimensional animation software provides significantly more options in terms of differentiation, while the more widely used flash animation provides such differentiation, but to a lesser extent and with fewer options.
Therefore, the present invention allows the user 12 to create a three-dimensional identifier, which can represent some "little man" consisting of squares, as a tool for expression and a device for storing information (see, for example, figa). The minimum expression for user ID 12 (ID 40) is a (two-dimensional) box. After various phases of transitions, a small square can turn into a three-dimensional animation cube, which can then turn around, resembling a little man consisting of small squares. ”Each face of a“ little man ”can have different doors, behind which specific information and other files are stored. User 12 can take a“ little man “with you: (i) within the same platform for use as a navigation tool and personal link (including use in interactions) within the site and (ii) for use on other platforms, as a result of which all the personal information of user 12 is stored inside a two-dimensional or three-dimensional “little man” and is available for use and reference. In the latter case, the method of using or allowing such a transportation function is similar to the transportation language created on the main site (project website 1) for mobile and / or other platforms as described above.
Further, although not shown in the drawings, other applications suitable for use with identifiers and / or a language created according to the present invention may include; hotels that can provide guests with a product in the form of a physical identifier, which can be installations within a room or other hotel premises, taking into account user attributes; the logistics / transport industry, in which an identifier can be used for ordering and / or delivery purposes, or, as in the case of public transport systems, physical sensors can be used to count the number of people entering the tram / train, and this information is made available as visual indicator for all means of public transport, so users can see the best route for a given day; banks and / or other financial institutions in which products with electronic and / or physical identifiers can be used, which allows users to access and / or edit their online banking web pages, etc .; voting systems in which user identifiers can be used to create statistical indicators of voting information, etc. and / or mail delivery systems in which various aspects of the present invention can be used to determine the volume of forwarded mail and / or track its delivery, while a visual indicator of results can be organized for individuals or corporations to see where the cargo is, and so on. .d.
Thus, the present invention provides a system 10 and / or method 100, 200, 300, 400 that provide personalized communication between various devices and / or applications 14 over a network 2, preferably the Internet or an appropriate telecommunications network. According to its preferred aspect, the present invention can also provide the creation of appropriate products for use in the proposed system and / or method, and these products allow you to personalize many other types of communication devices with which the user can come into contact daily.
